tert-Butyl peroxybenzoate, TBPB


Recent Literature


The reaction of tert-butyl peroxybenzoate (TBPB) and ammonia/amines provides the corresponding primary, secondary, and tertiary amides under catalyst- and solvent-free conditions in excellent yields. TBPB is an efficient and highly chemoselective benzoylating reagent for aliphatic amines in the presence of aromatic amines and hydroxyl groups.
